WATER TREATMENT PLANTS HAS RE-STARTED OPERATIONS, WATER SUPPLY TO BE RESTORED

Water supply to areas still affected by the disruption would be restored soon as the four treatment plants which were shut down has started operations this morning.



Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) Corporate Communications and Public Affairs Department assistant general manager Priscilla Alfred said the clean up of the river was completed by Lembaga Urus Air Selangor (Luas)  last night.
“The treatment plants has started operations at 3am this morning but it will take some time for water to be restored,” she told The New Straits Times.
“Water in the reservoir had depleted and will take some time to build up,” she added.
She also informed that the number of complaints had also decreased.
The water cut was following a diesel spill in Sungai Selangor which resulted in the four water treatment plants having to shut down operations.
The Sungai Selangor Phase 1 (SSP1), Sungai Selangor Phase 2 (SSP2), Sungai Selangor Phase 3 (SSP3) and Rantau Panjang water treatment plants were ordered to shut down immediately after a worker at SSP2 noticed traces of diesel floating down the river at 8am yesterday.
The cut affected over one million users in seven districts - Petaling, Kuala Lumpur, Klang/Shah Alam, Gombak, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor with low-water pressure or water disruptions, especially consumers living in higher places; those with small reserves of water and those at the end of the water supply and distribution system.
Meanwhile, Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the diesel oil contamination had successfully been controlled and operations at SSP1 and SSP3 resumed in stages between 12.30am and 1.30am today.
"From 4am to 6am, the production of water at these two plants had increased the raw water reserve level by as much as five metres," he said in a press statement released today.
He assured the public that water supply will recover in stages from this afternoon.
